Derby v Birmingham
FA Cup 5th Round
Saturday 13 February 2010
Birmingham are expected to knock Derby out of the cup but I feel that they are in for a surprise – they haven’t found it easy to score goals all season and in a cup tie with nerves on edge, they could end up dry once again. Derby have in contrast kept three consecutive clean sheets coming into this game.
Birmingham may have Derby’s number going on past meetings between the two clubs, but recent form suggests that the home team is more likely to win.
I don’t see an early resolution to the game though.
Betting Tip – back Draw/Derby at 11/2 in the Half-Time / Full-Time stakes.
